From its striking medieval castles to its attractive beaches, there are plenty of reasons why Bodrum pulls in hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. Its setting on the shores of the Aegean Sea has made it an important port over the centuries, meaning there are all manner of historic wonders just waiting to be explored, not the least of which is the famous Mausoleum at Helicarnassus - one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. And these top Airbnb vacation rentals are just some of the excellent options available when looking to book a stay and go exploring these wonders for yourself.
Boasting a picture postcard view out across the bay and the city’s white buildings, and enjoying a very strong reputation among former guests, this central one-bedroom flat is sure to appeal to couples eyeing a romantic getaway. Its central position means it is ideally placed for the short walk to local Turkish restaurants and nightspots, while the nearby beaches and boat trip options mean you’ll find plenty of things to do during your stay. And, on returning to your accommodation, the outside terrace makes for a great spot to unwind and soak in the view. Amenities include a full kitchen, wi-fi access and a TV.

Owned and operated by the same host as the first option on this list, and located in the same part of town, this private guest suite boasts many of the perks of that earlier listing but at a lower price - so those traveling on a budget may wish to take note. Naturally, this guest suite will not be as spacious as the first option but it is, nevertheless, quite roomy and comes with its own external entrance from a quiet private street, enabling you to come and go as you please. Guests also enjoy access to a simple kitchenette with a stove and microwave, and there’s a pleasant outdoor seating area in which to unwind in the sun.

If relaxing in the sun-kissed tangerine garden of a small family-run hotel sounds like your idea of holiday heaven, then you’re in luck. This double/twin room will suit everyone from solo travelers to couples or friends, and it is within an easy reach of the castle and local transport links. It also comes with wi-fi internet access and a TV, so tech fans should be happy, while the hotel’s lush green garden with its outside seating and breakfast dining area will be a great spot to unwind or make new friends among the other guests. Those who stayed here previously loved its location within a “little oasis” in central Bodrum and were also fulsome in their praise of its value for money.
